Severe travel delays on the A131 Gainsborough Road in Sudbury have been caused by a burst water main.

Police officers were called this morning to the A131 Gainsborough Road after a burst water main had disrupted traffic around the town.

Diversions had been put in place for the A120 and via Halstead and Braintree to keep traffic away from the area.

A lorry which was diverting from the water main area then became stuck after encountering a low bridge and being unable to turn around in Cross Street.

A police spokeswoman said traffic delays were expected to last until at least 4pm.
